7:30 pm
hold it's 52 thousand plus per year. >> where can we find this information. >> on our website and actually in every posting for an affordable unit we post that information as well but the full income limit chart is on our website it has its own sweet little place. >> sf mo >> .org. >> mo h >> sf mo h >> so the blow market rate programs that are monitored by mo h cd they're all constructed
7:31 pm
by developers private developers as opposed to the one hundred percent of affordable units are constructed by the partners their constructed with little or no cost to the city and not directly induced - subsidize we monitor those in 6 separate programs and as i said there's over one hundred and 40 units. >> how many are in the pipeline to be added to the 4 thousand? >> well, if you include the units that the ocii are developing over the next 20 years there's a thousand of
7:32 pm
those units in the pipeline about 50 units a year in addition, we expect this is depending on how the developers build about one hundred 50 to two hundred in the inclusionary pipeline. >> so - are you sure. >> yes. >> i know that mr. lee and i have discussed this during the last budget season in june or july had dialog is it 2 hundred units a year it's inclusionary plus ocii? or is that >> no, that's just the inclusionary it's about one hundred and 50 to two hundred per year. >> and how many from ocii. >> about 50. >> so it's 2 hundred and 50 a year between inclusionary and ocii. >> yeah. >> and how about the other pot
7:33 pm
from the affordable. >> you don't know i don't have a pipeline for them in front of me. >> for the next year's (inaudible). >> okay. so total about 12 or 1250 units a year coming online? is that - and well, that's a thousand plus the 250 yeah. >> i mean, that's just i'm sure that seems incredibly low the magnitude of the crisis is so great to be bringing 2 hundred plus online besides the affordable housing program and all the development happening in the city and the remnants of
7:34 pm
redevelopments is just seems xooeshl low i know it's a loaded question i know there's a lot of - when you look at 2175 market street in my district you were receiving referring before 18 unit and people applied you know in and of itself and the media correctly used that as a depth of the crisis we're in so does the agency think it's adequate we're bringing back 12 hundred and 50 units a year. >> we acknowledge and said there's a definite crisis and need for much more if we had more housing we couldn't have a lot of those prosperous but we are relying on what is being build in the inclusionary
7:35 pm
program in the bmr program so you know by your private developers and we have a percentage of those units that come online or so it is not that aspect of the bmr program isn't something we can control it's controlled by the developers that are building the units. >> right i guess i agree with supervisor kim that is for sure the agency does a good job in administering the program my concerns those issues are dwarfed we are producing shorted housing depending on the resources to what is devoted to
7:36 pm
affordable housing not enough is being produced. >> let me talk about what is being produced the 6 different programs i referred to there are 3 ownership programs and 3 rental programs that's hard to see but if you look at on page 3 of the handout you'll see it in the 3 buckets of production of ownership units one is the inclusionary program we've spoken of so we when a developer builds a condo we get a percentage of those as affordable ownership units unites also come from the former s f r a or the ocii pipeline and then they come from the condominium conversion the bmr
7:37 pm
discretionary from the 70s and 80s there are 3 hundred and 22 of those and 974 of the ocii units and 976 currently of the inclusionary units so that for homeownership that totals over 2 thousand unites other buckets for rentals. >> i want to make sure i understand so in the entire universe of the ownership that exists in san francisco 3 thousand 2 hundred units divide amongst the 2 hundred and 15 projects. >> yes, ma'am. >> what's the difference of the ownership program he version the inclusionary. >> well accident shipyard are ocii. >> anything in transbay.
7:38 pm
>> yes. >> but affordable housing have a were the inclusionary housing. >> well, i'm not talking about the rental programs only the ownership. >> right. >> so this is strictly ownership units. >> so of admission and tenth street all homeownership under the inclusionary homeownership program. >> yes, ma'am. >> that was built on there development like mission bay and the green category. >> yes, ma'am. >> i'm a little embarrassed i don't know that the homeownership in the 70s and 80. >> the condominium conversion program and i might ask for help open that, too are for the history of it is new to me as well - it allows homeowners i'm
7:39 pm
sorry it allows be renters to purchase their unit at an affordable price am i correct when the building was subdivided there was many types of programs that evolved over time but some of the units will have or even able to rent out their units others go away are a certain period of time their restrictions don't last forever it's a legacy program and there are about 60 projects throughout the city that falls under that category. >> and 3 hundred and 22 are below market rate.
7:40 pm
>> yes. >> it's not a program we continue anymore we're only maintaining that. >> we're - if a unit it's not a current program. >> so we're not maintaining. >> thank you. >> that's fine i'll call somebody that know if i have further questions on the rental buckets we have so the rental program so there's 3 budgets for those types of unit where they come from as well inclusionary units again and so this is be will be air force have a projects and the former sf units with the new units coming online and with the and that's like avalon mission bay or yerba buena and dollars then there are
7:41 pm
the 8020 bond the 75 market you were referring to and each one of these buckets have different regulatory agreements there's this very hard to see file or slide so in the inclusionary program they're all under planning code section 415 and monitored by the procedures manual so all the rules come out of those for all of those citywide bmr in the inclusionary program ocii portfolio the former agency portfolio those have individuals
7:42 pm
regulatory agreements so for the homeownership program there's the l e p or limited equality those are different requirements and restrictions then 4 to 5 very different homeownership units sf r a rental agreements are spirit agreement with each development that are worked out with the former redevelopment the condominium conversion program follows the procedures manual for the resale of homeownership units and the 80020 deals have individual regulatory agreements
7:43 pm
so when a one particular bmr unit could be monitoring under any of these buckets of authorities so when people say i've got a bmr and didn't get in we have to dig down to mouth u figure out whoo what which with was the monitoring agreement that specific bmr our talking about and what are the rules of that particular unit there's - bmr is - there's must be a joke about how one didn't look like the other they're all you have to look at under the sheet to see what is going on. >> i have a question. >> yes. >> about the bmr's about the 0
7:44 pm
joke if it's distinguishable i've heard the southern will be the quality of the products that are used to create and constrict those bmr's if there's a prospective there's urging inferior products to compete it stoopz to the marketing and housing their units their below market and however their crumbling do you have. >> under the current procedures manual each under the current planning codes all the bmr's and inclusionary program are built exactly the is that you as the onsite market unit. >> there are there spimgsz that are spelled out clearly as to
7:45 pm
the - >> to assure we're building quality and not sub quality. >> on the oust it's spelled auto each unit needs to be of the exact if it's a one bedroom and market rate unit and built to southern specifications thereon the bmr unit is built the same the only difference is in awe lines we law the developer if they're putting in the highest end regulatory. >> then like stain also steel. >> they don't have to put in the same. >> i'm not focused on the awe appliances maybe the plywood or the 4 by 4 you know the real shell of the building and where
7:46 pm
so where do those inspections where are they spelled spelled out it's in the planning code so correct me if i am wrong. >> planning code 415 it be specifically said one bedroom is x in terms of dimensions but not the quality of material if i'm not mistaken. >> i'll see if anyone else can speak to that. >> my decision is to the quality of materials or the contractors can goes out there's several versions of concrete how do we know they're not using the cheapest kinds of concrete because of the below market rate or someone is not paying top dollar they're less inclined to
7:47 pm
put in top quality i only speculate about it certainly you units that have been built that bmr people are living in hey, there's dry rot and the building is only a few years old. >> i know that the mayor's office of housing is familiar we're heard that the bmr residents their units don't get upgraded at the same rate it maybe coming in a unit a that's equal to a market rate unit but not the same alliance upgrades as the market units that's an issue we've heard from our bmr rental. >> sure. >> residents. >> i think that also goes back to the regulatory agreement what it says in the monitoring agreements or those you know ongoing agreement i can tell you in the inclusionary program the
7:48 pm
current section 415 manual we the address that and we're, in fact, we're just recently found a discrepancy and we've fixed that before it went to market but in some of the older buildings and the regulatory agreements they don't stocking speak to that it is leaving the developer to make those calls and or the owner i should is. >> is there direction from mow to think about the future with the private developers on the uthd situation we didn't think about that with a lot of the private developers i sat in the
7:49 pm
negotiation upstairs your exciting to get them built but now we have residents living in the unit 10 or 20 years later and hearing about things we haven't worked occult and come up with a set of standards. >> we're going to be working on redoing our manual our procedures manual and that's something we can look at it and figure out how to be explicit in the mandate with regards to the upgrades and making sure it is paired with what they're doing with the market rate in their building. >> that will provide clarity for the city and also our residents in future cases of
7:50 pm
disagreements and this is a good segue to my - here we go oh, what have i done. >> next step. >> what's 200 underway with our what is currently under a way to improve the bmr programs so we've recently expanded our access to housing program you've spoken of supervisor kim earlier and we've been able to provide grant funding to not only the veterans center but also sf d.c. and metro at that and empire
7:51 pm
credit counseling services and the lgbt center to provide a competitive program for people to get a grasp of the lottery process and what it means to apply and how you need to be ready in case you win to move forward and secure a unit to help with credit and savings and help with all the barriers that our folks face in getting housing and we have also we're gina process of training those agencies those and other agencies that are providing similar services to so they understand the program and the buckets and regulatory agreement and why in it building are
7:52 pm
they're requesting for immigration status and in this building they're not so they're able to communicate those differences that are vested to our consumers so that's currently underway and we're also it's been underway for a while but in the development stages that are our dalai it is database of affordable housing listing information and applications and an electric data application system where you find housing you go in and create an account and able to apply for the vacancies in the lottery electronically you don't have to
7:53 pm
verify that everywhere during the solemn hours it's open it causes frustrations and you'll be able to not input the same information about your householder so we're hoping that makes it easier for folks to apply for our opportunities the dalai system we're hoping that will be read after the first of the year we're so hopefully. >> you make concrete statements. >> it's the developers that we're working with. >> and you say developers the engineers. >> so are they working for free? >> they're working at a discount not for free. >> we're paying them something don't we have the upper hand to
7:54 pm
say when it's deliverable. >> you would think there's a problem with the system their working out there's in the final stages of working that out and they've assured us we'll be up and running by itself first of the year. >> but you're right oh, yeah. >> so once the system is up and operational after the first of the year we need to come back and look at it how to roll it out and what's obviously sometimes a difficult and challenging thing to talk about i hope the dalai is able to take the information i don't know if we can translate that and yes. >> and that's an improvement to the current system we have where the developer is required to
7:55 pm
provide those language differences and in the hydraapplication they'll tell you they do and we hear they haven't this way we'll be able to control that. >> what languages. >> well, the system will be able to be translated in many, many languages more than the 3 languages that are the city requires or focuses on. >> what's the 3. >> the 3 are chinese, tagalog and spanish but the system will it has a built in the sales has a built in transaction tool to go into many more languages. >> it's not a google type of outrageous because something as
7:56 pm
complicated as a housing application i would be scared to have google translate that it's importantly more confusing if a technical word was noted translated the right way i'm not sure that's a step up but will chinese and spanish and tagalog b be translated by the city. >> we're actually looking at that for our paper applications. >> they're not trailed. >> the inclusionary program it's up to the developer to translate those and we're working on and hope to have that final. >> it sounds like we need to change the criteria that elevates the standards when you
7:57 pm
translate something here the basic languages that needs to be translated into and the criteria around the standards, where their attorneys the size and the placement of their advertising and making sure there's cultural competent so it's cultural their standardized in. >> we can work on that supervisor kim. >> i'm sorry we don't translate any of our housing applications through the redevelopment agrees ocii i know their private developers in all the cases we don't think the nonprofits or developers to translate their own documents currently. >> okay. yeah so i'd like to work on that.
7:58 pm
>> in mid-2005 we hope that we will be able to - currently working on that and this is just kind of goes along what we're so to speak about right now the marketing stewards for all the different buckets including the one hundred percent units are different because of the regulatory agreements we're looking to system misses the marketing standards and tenant selection criteria across the programs so that people won't be sprite but what one building will allow and the other will not and we and so our developers will be able to have more
7:59 pm
consistent guidance on the things upper speaking about how long they stay out and the application period lasts so we're working on as wherever possible it's difficult to do procedures all across the board whether there are so many regulatory requirements but whatever possible we're looking to system misses the marketing and the criteria for the rental unit and then finally, we think that by late 2015 we will have an update to the inclusionary procedures manual where we can update and make it address some of the needs we've learned about or we've been monitoring for
8:00 pm
quite some. we when there're things in the inclusionary manual we don't think are working we make a note and consider that for the next manual update that's all i got and you have questions. >> i have questions this is for you or for mr. lee if you can answer what is mo do to insure the access to our affordable housing program whether it's the inclusionary or non-inclusionary to make sure that the entire spectrum of the community knows about it and access it because my sense right now is that
